Total nonsense, you're trying to provide a solution in search of a problem. Does your idea guarantee that the industry will attract the best and most talented people? i don't think so, it just reeks of artificial gatekeeping. Fortunately the principles of free market economy won't ever let this happen.

That's funny. The principles if federal regulations after things like Solar Winds make it inevitable.

Not really, because comparing SolarWinds to a mom & pop shop doing WordPress sites would clearly be comparing apples and oranges, yes? Both are doing "software development", however one is arguably a little bit more mission critical than the other. But both should undergo the same sort of licensing and certification? I think that's a total waste of time and resources, instead require this where it makes sense, not across the board.

And no, I won't reconsider my position.

The whole idea is nuts but once someone is obsessed with their own "brilliant" idea then it's generally extremely hard to convince them they're wrong, I'm absolutely about to give up and say "yes fine, whatever".
